Happy Fourth of July! Independence Day is one of the high points of summer in America - a chance for us all to get together and celebrate what makes America so special.
As Americans, we have the chance to celebrate our democracy, our diversity, our personal freedom, and our liberty to pursue our goals and dreams. We have the liberty to act, speak, think, and worship freely. This precious liberty was fought for, and it has been upheld for more than two centuries, at great cost. As we enjoy the holiday, it is worth remembering that we live in a nation like no other, born from a brave and courageous vision and sustained by those who believe in the American dream. When those spectacular fireworks go off on the Fourth, they remind us that we are so lucky to live in this spectacular country.
Enjoy today and the fireworks and fun that the day brings and please celebrate safely!
